I had a good experience in the hospital. The staff took great care of me. Not all of the staff speaks English but there is some one there that dose.

This is my second trip to Cancun for plastic surgery with My Medical Vacations. This time I came for a breast lift and augmentation, and some liposuction. I’m very happy with the results Dr. Sámano has a great bedside manner, and was very understanding. Betty is one of the concierge staff and is still one of my favorite people on earth. Betty and Andres have made my second trip just as good as the first. Ana, my nurse checked on me every morning and did a great job with my aftercare, she is also amazing! I have recommended My Medical Vacations to all of my Friends and several people have booked in based on my experience. These guys are great I really can’t say enough good things about them!

I had researched rhinoplasty and its associated costs extensively before contacting My Medical Vacations (MMV). I also had an acquaintance who has had several procedures done in Cancun using MMV. Katie, the coordinator; Betty my concierge and Ana my nurse have been by my side Throughout this procedure… they are truly amazing and dedicated people. If I were to need other procedures I would not hesitate using MMV services again and would highly recommend them to anyone. Rosellen Frisbee

Reveert's public relations personnel, Lori Payne, answered all my questions and concerns, arrange all my appointments as well as follow up very quickly to accommodate my schedule. Dr. Alejandro was very professional, extremely knowledgable and very personable. My results for the arm lift perfectly matched my vision. I received stellar service throughout the entire process, including hospital staff, and the entire process took minimal amount of time. I strongly recommend Reveert, Dr. Alejandro and the location of my hospital stay to anyone considering surgery

Superb! Dr. Alejandro, Lori the coordinator, nurses and the entire staff were outstanding. They answered all questions professionally, clearly, patiently and promptly about the surgery and post-op expectations. They offered the latest approved surgical techniques. The follow-up care was excellent. Dr. Alejandro's credentials are sterling. The hospital is state-of-the art in Zapópan near Guadalajara. It can hold its own with the finest in any country. It is also aesthetically pleasing. Patient care is superb. I researched carefully, as you should, where to have my plastic surgery performed. REEVERT was an excellent choice all round. Do not fear coming to REVEERT in Guadalajara in any way. The city and the colonial gem, Tlaquepaque, nearby are safe, beautiful, filled with cultural activities and fine cuisine. The Mexican people are universally kind and cordial. I recommend that you stay fairly near to the hospital in any number of delightful places in Mexico should there be any minor glitches. Combining your healing process with a pleasant vacation will take your mind off things. Lori is a goldmine of information on what you might enjoy. Am I glad I chose REEVERT to get rid of my "turkey wattle?" Absolutely. The results look terrific.

What is Abdominal Etching (Liposculpture)?

Abdominal etching (liposculpture) is a cosmetic surgery procedure where an individual’s abdominal muscles are defined using liposuction. Unlike a traditional tummy tuck that involves the removal of significant amounts of fat and skin. Abdominal Etching is best suited for those who are already close to their ideal weight since no skin and only small amounts of fat will be removed as the surgeon is sculpting the appearance of the abdomen.

 

Abdominal etching was developed in the early 1990’s and its popularity has been steadily increasing for the last 20 years. Both men and women want to undergo this surgery so they can achieve the chiseled abs and flat stomach that are eye-catching today.

 

Abdominal etching is not a weight loss surgery. If you are having weight issues then it is best to look into alternative treatments that will give you your desired results.

 

If you have already had a tummy tuck or liposuction, then you can travel abroad for abdominal etching. This procedure cannot be carried out at the same time but rather at a later date.

 

A Good Candidate for Abdominal Etching (Liposculpture)

During a tummy tuck procedure, loose muscles are tightened using stitches. Abdominal etching is only carried out for patients who already have reasonably tight muscles and are seeking to extensively define them. If you require more than what this type of plastic surgery offers, you may be a good candidate for a tummy tuck.

 

Abdominal Etching (Liposculpture) Procedure

Abdominal etching surgery is done under general or local anesthetic. If you choose local anesthetic, the plastic surgeon may give you sedatives as well. It is normally an outpatient procedure so you will not be required to stay overnight in a hospital. You will, however, be monitored for a few hours after the surgery to assure stability.

 

Before the surgery, the plastic surgeon will mark on your abdomen indicating where your muscles are when you flex. The markings will allow the surgeon to introduce the grooves with a special cannula during the procedure. Liposuction is carried out through tiny incisions made on your body to implicate these grooves. The incisions will take a couple of weeks to heal.

 

Average Duration of Abdominal Etching Surgery: 2-3 hours
